I have said before that there is a very real danger that people are over-estimating the ability of Mauro Zarate. After two goal-scoring games in a Birmingham shirt, people are already claiming he is the son of God! The latest rumour below should frankly scare the hell out of West Ham fans!
Hammers boss Alan Curbishley is planning an £18 million raid for Birmingham City’s on-loan striker Mauro Zarate. (The Sun)
If this is true, and let’s face it that’s unlikely, such an expensive purchase of an as yet unproven striker would be frankly insane. West Ham could invest that money far more wisely in my opinion; even a £10m raid on Darren Bent would be a better purchase.
